By Rasmussen Reports


1* Looking back, were the bailouts of banks, auto companies, and insurance companies good for the United States or bad for the United States?



2* Do you favor or oppose a boycott of all firms that received government bailout money?



3* Suppose that consumers boycotted firms that received a government bailout. Looking ahead, would that make companies less likely to accept a government bailout?



4* What would do more to prevent future bailoutsā€”companies fearing a boycott or members of Congress fearing voter disapproval?



5* Bailouts were provided to auto companies, banks, insurance companies, and others. How likely are you to boycott all firms that were bailed out by the government?
